Hamerton Zoo Park welcomed a new arrival earlier this year, after one of its Bactrian camels gave birth to a healthy female calf.
The calf is the second baby for seven-year-old Karaki and arrived in front of a crowd of surprised visitors on November 3.
The Bactrian camel is native to Central Asia, has two humps on its back, and can withstand temperatures from freezing to blistering heatwaves.
Now almost two-months-old, the baby is still yet to be named and The Hunts Post has teamed up with zoo to let readers have their say on what the camel should be called.
